Default 93 Ranger, which power steering fluid?

Hi

Newbie here, fixing up a 93 I recently bought, going thru it stem to stern and servicing everything incl changing all fluids.

First thing I did when I bought it was find an oem shop manual - they always prove invaluable.

However, when it comes to PS fluid, in one place it says Type F, in another (in the section on steering), it says "premium power steering fluid type" so and so.

I'm inclined to believe the info in the section on steering R&R, but the reservoir had something that sure looks like Mercon, etc. Red.

No leaks in it (75k miles), so am kind of torn between using Mercon or switching to regular synth PS fluid.

Any words of wisdom?

Thanks!

I've always used just regular power steering fluid!

My '93 uses tranny fluid in the power steering with no problems.
